Facebook's secret "dangerous individuals and organizations" blacklist, which the Big Tech giant uses to silence dissenters as though they're on par with Islamic terrorists, has been leaked in full by The Intercept.
The blacklist, which applies to both Facebook and Instagram, has right-wing commentators like Nick Fuentes and Gavin McInnes listed alongside ISIS terrorist groups.
Joshua Caleb Sutter, the leader of the Satanic death cult Atomwaffen Division who was recently outed as a well-paid FBI informant, is on the list as well as Atomwaffen as a group. The Proud Boys, which has been led for years now by "prolific" FBI informant Enrique Tarrio, also made the list.
Facebook also lists the anti-feminist and anti-SJW blog "A Voice For Men" as a "hate" group. The SPLC evidently labeled the site as "male supremacist" in 2018.
Some other notable blacklisted "hate" sites include the American Free Press, American Renaissance, Britain First and Red Ice Creations.
As a reminder, Facebook-owned Instagram deemed FBI crime stats "hate speech" last year.
Here's the full list of "dangerous individuals" (check out the full list of groups on The Intercept):
From The Intercept, "Revealed: Facebook's Secret Blacklist of 'Dangerous Individuals and Organizations' ":
A Facebook spokesperson categorically denied that Facebook gives extremist right-wing groups in the U.S. special treatment due to their association with mainstream conservative politics. They added that the company tiers groups based on their behavior, stating, "Where American groups satisfy our definition of a terrorist group, they are designated as terrorist organizations (E.g. The Base, Atomwaffen Division, National Socialist Order). [Note: The evidence suggests at least two out of three of those groups were run by the feds and their well-paid informants.] Where they satisfy our definition of hate groups, they are designated as hate organizations (For example, Proud Boys, Rise Above Movement, Patriot Front)."There's a couple far-left extremist groups like Earth Liberation Front and It's Going Down on the list but the focus is overwhelmingly on suppressing the "far-right" in the West and groups aligned with Iran and Hezbollah in the Middle East -- in other words, enemies of the US and Israel.
